Who can join iCAN?
Every parent of a child with JIA and associated rheumatological conditions in Ireland is already a member of iCAN – all you have to do is get in touch with us by phone, email, post or Facebook! There is no annual membership fee and no obligation to fundraise. Our primary function and iCAN’s origins are in SUPPORT, SUPPORT, SUPPORT. We are all parents of children facing the daily rollercoaster of JIA and we are here to support you every step of the way.

What do iCAN members… do?
As a member of iCAN you can be as much or as little as involved as you like! We have a very popular private Facebook forum, open only to iCAN members. This is a  great source of support and information for all parents. We have family days out, which are fun days for the kids to take part in activities while the parents chat. And we have Laugh & Learn days – where the children go off to ‘laugh’ and do fun activities while the parents ‘learn’ – taking part in lectures and workshops specifically about JIA.

Most of all, as a member of iCAN you will know you are not alone – and that whatever you face in your journey with Juvenile Arthritis – iCAN will be there with you every step of the way!
